I have users that want to enter a P.O. # into a report after the report has
been generated. They currently write the P.O. # on to the report. Is there
a way to add an editable field to an IM report?

Thanks

What we do for things like that is to add a retrieval argument to the
report, where the user enters the P.O. #
Ignore the warning in the SQL painter that you are not using the argument in
your select statement.
Then on the report you create a computed field usign the retrieval argument.
